2009 French Open Odds – Can Andy Murray Win? No!


No Andy Murray cannot win – cause he has just been knocked out.

We are now in the tenth day of the French Open with all half of the quarter final matches completed. The 2009 French Open was blown wide open after the events on sunday Rafael Nadal Losing in the French Open.

Andy Murray entered the French Open as the fourth favourite to win the title and one of the only few realistic choices of upsetting world number 1 and FOUR time champion Rafael Nadal. He’s out, Nadal’s out, Fed is still in.

Bookmakers have slashed their odds Federer winning the title. The average has dropped to 11/10 (2.1) across the bookmakers (was 5/1 (6.0)  prior to Nadal exit).


After dispatching Murray today Gonzalez is the new second favorite to win in Paris.

French player Gael Monfils has the crowd support and looking to end the drought of a Frenchmen winning in Paris. Monfils look like a reasonable contender and seems to be dealing with the home crowd pressure better than any other previous French players. I’m betting he makes the final, bold statement considering that means Roger Federer would not  as these two now meet in the quarters.

Robin Soderling, Nadals conqueror is average odds of 5/1 if you fancy the Swedish maestro to continue his way to the title.
